Nine teachers among 128 Chicago Public Schools employees canned after background checks

Daniel Webster School, West Side

Among the 128 workers were nine teachers, 35 people classified as classroom aides and an unspecified number of people the district lists as substitute or hourly workers, the Chicago Tribune reported.

Another 124 employees remain barred from work because they haven’t submitted fresh fingerprints for an updated background check.

The district’s review, and additional measures to protect students, came after the newspaper reported in June that ineffective background checks sometimes exposed students to educators with criminal convictions and arrests for sex crimes against children.
It is my opinion that CPS should close--fire everyone--and reopen with new administration and teachers.
